It's called Sun Gallant Demi (or simply "Gallant", as no other weights or
variations of it exist). It's the default console font of SPARC
workstations and SunOS/Solaris; OpenBSD used to use it, until they switched
to a much blander console font <>.

It's the only fixed-pitch serif typeface I've seen that pulls that look off
naturally. I wouldn't be lying if I said it looks better than half the
body-text fonts I usually come across.

There's a Linux version too, if you're interested:
